Parkinson's in your workplace

Our free awareness session will give your staff a better understanding of Parkinson's and ways they can support customers or colleagues with the condition.

Lack of public understanding can make simple things like getting the bus, going to work, or even heading out to the pub with friends daunting for people with Parkinson's.

One small action makes a big impact on people with Parkinson's, and your organisation can make a huge difference.

Diane's story

In this video, Diane explains how a lack of public understanding about Parkinson's affects her when carrying out everyday tasks, such as visiting a supermarket.

What does the session involve?

  • The short, narrated session includes video content with activities tailored for different customer-facing settings, including retail, hospitality, transport, airports and for those who employ or work with someone with the condition.
  • Supported by a guide, the session is easy to follow and self-contained, and requires no prior knowledge of Parkinson's.
  • It can fit alongside your organisation's own staff training programmes - all you need is good internet, a screen and sound.

Who's it for?

The session is great for anyone who delivers in-house training, such as inductions, equality and diversity, customer service or elements of the UK's Equality Act 2010 (or Northern Ireland's Disability Discrimination Act).
